Not true. The SBA does not have programs based on gender - it is illegal. The 504 program is a community based loan program for local small businesses seeking to purchase commercial real estate or business equipment that requires the borrower (man or woman) to put down 10%, the community development company will guarantee 40% and the lending bank with the SBA will guarantee the remaining 50%. nothing here are gender.

You could do an online search for one of the many 'women helping women' groups out there. They may know of lenders that - while do not provide specific loans just to women - but may give women the same chance as men - all based on the business's wherewithal.
